With the Shofar blown, a greeting prayer and a warm welcome (saying that today, all over the world, well over 500 million Believers were in prayer for repentance. Family, I got to tell you, it felt great! And I co-hosted with a most excellent friend and translator, Kiku-San. He had just returned from an Alpha/VIP Holy Spirit weekend!
A friend brought his professional video and took 60 min of the high lights of the day. From two Black Gospel groups--not one Black in them--to a Japanese/Jewish Believing Church's Jewish dance, we were prayed into the presence of our Lord. Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, English, Tagalog, Hebrew, and Portuguese was used during this 3-5:30 meeting. (Well, it started around 3:40 and ended around 5:50.) For some, they never had seen so many Believers together in one place before!
I loved it!
We had the Pastors, missionaries, and Christian workers come to the front for prayer by the people in the seats. It was great. Later, we asked the kids to come to the stage and one Japanese young girl prayed and then our own Ken N. covered them with a powerful prayer. TJ, the worship leader from KBF (meets at CAJ) covered us with worship songs and played in the background during some silent times.
New Life League made a large poster! It was almost ten feet by 7 feet.
"Global Day of Prayer" in blue on while. Really set off the stage as we had not had one last year.
So, next year, I will be in the US and the group will need to grow much bigger. I spoke of a city wide program and the crowd seemed to love the idea. Maybe Tokyo Dome! This place had room for 2,000 so we need for more contact and more ads. Got to get local pastors on board. Those that did, came and had a wonderful time!
Now, today, Monday, I rest.
And God is Good! All the time!
Thank you for your prayers and support. Do come to the next GDOP event.
Look for the next time,
